Air Mobility Command logistics leadership visits AFRL/RX

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Brig. Gen. Stacey T. Hawkins, Director, Logistcs, Engineering and Force Protection, Air Mobility Command (center) learns more about additive manufacturing capabilities for functional materials during a visit to the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Aug. 26. The laboratory visit was part of a larger tour of AFRL facilities to gain in-depth knowledge of current capabilities for additive manufacturing technology. The visit included a directorate overview, discussions on additive manufacturing applications and visits to multiple research laboratories, highlighting 3-D printing capabilities for metals, polymer-based materials and functional material applications. AMC is exploring the possibilities of using additive manufacturing for replacement parts for aircraft during the life-cycle maintenance process. (Air Force photo by Marisa Novobilski/released)
